president obama is vowing to find the killer there. the u.s. ambassador, chris stevens died tuesday night after a mob stormed the consulate in benghazi. the violence, though, spreading not only in cairo, and you can see live pictures from egypt, it's spreading in the region and to a certain degree as well. we'll stay on top of it. that's it for us, thank you very much for watching, "ac 360" starts right now. breaking news tonight. >>> good evening, everyone. american warships and u.s. marines on the move, drones airborne. and a running battle on the streets of cairo between police and protesters outside and near the u.s. embassy and at a mosque in tahrir square. these are live pictures. late new developments in the wake of the siege there yesterday and the attack on the u.s. consulate that left four americans dead, including j. christopher stevens, the ambassador to libya who's being remembered as a dedicated and talented advocate for this country overseas. it is hard to overstate the significance of what happened last night at that american consulate in benghazi. he is the first ambassad
attacked our people. >> well, later today after that news," president obama also had speech on "the cbs evening news," president obama also had sharp words for mitt romney, who's come under fire from democrats and some republicans for his statements lashing out at the obama administration's response to the attacks in benghazi and cairo. statements that whatever you believe about american foreign policy are simply not factual. we'll get to the battle over that in a moment. first we do want to focus on the attacks themselves, what happened last night and what is happening right now with the latest information we have. again, you're looking at live pictures now from cairo. breaking news both in libya and cairo to tell you about. yesterday's all-out assault on the american embassy may be over but the fighting around it continues tonight in cairo. the compound now ringed with egyptian security forces who are reportedly using tear gas and about 500 protesters gathering at a mosque in nearby tahrir square. those are the images you're seeing. we're also learning more details, pretty bizarre stu
pup brepur break-fast. president obama got 78% of the jewish vote in 2008. mccain, 21% of the vote but we wanted to talk to these fam bliss their different views because netanyahu and the president have been making so many headlines right now and you mitt romney. we talked a lot about that red line whether the president is clear enough making a red line with iran. netanyahu publicly criticizing the administration for not doing that romney citing with netanyahu. take a listen to the family we met with last night who are supporting president obama. >> i think he has made it hard for the united states to keep israel with this special ally status that it's had because the united states can't be pushed around by anyone. i just think that obama is being very rational and reasonable to a bully right now. >> the president taking the iran threat seriously enough right now or does netanyahu have a point? >> he has built an international coalition. he has succeeded in buildi in i embargo against iran unprecedented. >> mitt romney said things like president obama has "thrown allies like israel
the tragedy to criticize the president's foreign policy agenda. >> i think president obama has demonstrated a lack of clarifity to a foreign policy. my foreign policy has three branches. >> the only spesty we have is a repeated mantra regarding confidence, clarity and resolve. it is worth noting that if this latest line of attack is aimed at winning romney undecided voters the international stage is not one where he has thus far proven himself to be the greatest actor. previous performances have included calling russia our number one geopolitical foe, alienating much of the united kingdom during the olympics in london, undermining sensitive bilateral negotiations over chinese dissident and failing to mention the war in afghanistan during his convention speech. john heilemann, i turn to you first on this. i think a lot of us were sort of taken aback at the back and forth between the romney campaign and i guess the white house, more specifically as far as the romney campaign and how they've handled this, it seems to be moves that are nakedly political and i think to some degree sort of shocki
